Martin Garrix And Bebe Rexha Cover Twenty One Pilots’ “Heathens”


Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha recently hit the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge for a chilling performance of their collaboration “In The Name Of Love,” while offering up a special treat for fans as they played a cover of Twenty One Pilots’ smash hit “Heathens.” Garrix and Rexha had previously delivered a live rendition of “In The Name Of Love” on The Tonight Show which saw the Dutch DJ out of the mixing booth and behind a guitar, and they utilize a similar setup for the BBC Lounge performance.

Backed by a full live band and Garrix’s own fretwork, Rexha takes to the mic to voice the familiar hooks from Twenty One Pilots’ hit single. Her alluring vocals work surprisingly well with the song, ringing out over the crash of live drums, distorted guitar strums and plodding piano chords.

As if the “Heathens” cover wasn’t enough, Garrix and Rexha deliver a powerful performance of “In The Name Of Love,” featuring stripped down acoustic instrumentation and a soaring vocal delivery that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing up.
